Rimfire Rigs

Does anyone have experience with the CZ 455 Tacticool?  I hate the name but I'm looking for a rimfire match to my Rem 700 AAC in a Magpul hunter stock, for use with a supressor.  I'd love an Anschutz  but that's not in the cards right now.

Seeing as this is Rimfire Rigs, and there's about 20 places I could ask this...

 

Wsup with subsonic .22 ammo? I've got a bunch of CCI subsonic I've been trying to use in my M&P 15-22 and my Ruger 22/45 pistol, both suppressed. Both are quiet enough out shooting, but don't cycle either action.

 

Is there a subsonic out there that will? Or is this the nature of the beast. Non-subsonics, even CCI "standard velocity" is way too loud out of both with my SilencerCo Sparrow attached.

Try target ammo, eley, etc? The sparrow isn't the quietest can, and you have port noise to contend with (i.e. noise from the can isn't loudest thing you are hearing).

 I use Aguila Subsonic Solid Point 40 grains in my M&P 22, Walther P22 and GSG-5 22LR all with a SilencerCo Warlock II and they all cycle great with that ammo. It is the only subsonic 22lr ammo I have found so far that will cycle reliably in those guns. Academy Sports + Outdoors has it on sale every so often at $3.99 for a 50 round box with free shipping (over $25.00).

I'm looking to replace the barrel on my 10/22 in something 16" and threaded and into the Magpul stock. Any recommendations on barrels? I don't want super expensive ( over $200) and something that will shoot Federal bulk pack ammo well. It's nice to see .22 ammo is back available and at reasonable prices again. 

Got asked the same question today by a friend of mine who wants to get into target shooting with .22s.   Anyone have any thoughts about offerings that I can recommend?  He's got the Magpul stock already and a Vortex scope for it.    I suggested a barrel upgrade and a trigger, any other parts that can be replaced to help reliability and accuracy?

Depends on how much he wants to spend. My factory 10/22 mid weight barrel shoots lights out.

There are all kinds of barrel and trigger upgrades. KIDD is the name in 10/22's ..Volquartzen, Feddersen Barrels....TacSol...

Tell him to go to Rimfire Central and start reading the 10/22 section....more info then he could imagine.

Damn, I tried finding one of those over here for my .22LR trainer project: collectors items & well over the USD400 you paid.

A quick post on my latest:  Ruger Single Six Hunter Convertable, 22LR/22WMR

 

Topped with a Simmons 4x scope.  I was the only one on campus, it being a holiday, so it was time for some range play.  I had 5 different types of 22 ammo in the bag: Bulk Remington, Federal Champion, CCI MiniMags, CCI Blazer and Fed GMM. 

25 yard groups fired from the fold down/up tray table on the Caswell firing points (indoor police range). 

These are 10 shot groups.  A steadier rest and younger eyes (too many floaties) and they could improve.  The GMM group on the bottom was about the size of dime.

The scope rings came with the pistol.  With this scope, the rear sight has to be removed.  Simply unscrew the elevation adjustment all the way, carefully lift up and recover the spring, and take out the hinge pin.  I am really pleased with this gun.

"I am really pleased with this gun."

     I would definitely think so.  Now that is a squirrel gun!  That would be fun in the woods.

Please let us know how it shoots the 22mag  when you give it a try. ..if you can find any.  That stuff has been unobtainium for some time around here.

 

As requested, some 22WMR.  All of these are 5 shot groups.  WMR is still scarce, but it does show up from time to time.  Sadly, there is  a HUGE price difference between what I bought years ago vs what is on the shelf.  For those unfamiliar, the little green sticker is a TN ammo tax stamp. 

Winchester Supreme.  I dont have the product number, but obviously this load works.

Speer Gold Dot, Short Barrel ammo.  I'd buy THAT for a dollar!!

The most common WMR on the shelf.  Yeah, shooting WMR is more expensive than shooting 9mm, 40SW, maybe even 45 Auto.  The group has opened up a bit, but it is still 'game effective' for anything large enough to need WMR- ground hogs, coyote, etc.

Definitely something going on here.  This was the second group of the day (the Win was the first) so this cannot be attributed to shooter warm-up.   This round shoots awesome in my Henry levergun, and I had high hopes it in the Ruger.  It might see a re-visit just to confirm the results.

I have never gotten very good accuracy with this ammo out of any WMR I have owned.  Like the Rem load above, something  is happening here.  Unfortunatly, I dont have enough ammo to fire groups isolating each chamber in the cyclinder, but given the other hits on paper with the Win and Speer loads, I doubt the timing/alignment is off.

 

The price tag on this pistol is pretty steep in comparison to many other rimfires, but I think the results justify the cost.  Bonus points, I am consuming less ammo on the range (less cost per session) and I can shoot 22 Shorts, Longs, and Long Rifle in one cylinder, and WMR in the second.  For the 'prepper/survivalist/woodsman' types, this handgun takes the place of two rifles.

 

BTW, groups were fired from the same firing point, using the same plastic box/towel combo to rest it on, at 25 yrds.

Well I'll bump this thread again.

Last year I dipped my toe back in to long range rifles again with a Ruger PRS in 308. Knowing that I'm a little bitch about being cold now that I don't "have" to be, I would have the winter months without my favorite national grasslands lands spot to shoot and wanted to maintain fundamental skills with the constraints of an indoor range. Thus the need for a .22 bolt gun was identified and I spent a few months hemming and hawing, aka researching. 

Purchased a Savage MK II TRR-SR, think I paid $400 and didn't feel the need to do much to her besides putting taking off the abomination that is the tri-rail mounts..Who the fuck needs a whimpy tri-rail on a .22?!?!?!?!?!? added a Primary Arms 4-14 scope, bipod,  stock pack and AAC 51t ((spares out of the parts bin) during the wait for my sparrow can. Of course every gun deserves a paint job if you're really tacticool ya know.

Completely accurate beyond my skill set, great training tool and cat/squirrel controller (when I get the HH6 blessings that is). Heavy for a typical .22 especially compared to the ubiquitous 10/22 but fits the role exactly as hoped. Been running Aguilar (SP) subsonic and I just can't stop giggling Everytime I shoot her. Easily able to stack holes at 50 & 75 meters as long as I have ammo.

I suppose adapting a 40x to feed from a magazine would be a complete bastard of a job?

My most used rimfire rig as of late doesn't seem as high-speed or low drag as a lot of them here, but here we go ...

Its a standard 10-22 in carbine length (18 inches) moved over to a Hogue overmold stock fitted with a USGI web sling.  I put on a set of the Nodak sights (front and rear), and dropped in a Power Custom trigger and auto-bolt release.  I built this gun to go to an Appleseed shoot, and it was more than enough to make their Rifleman patch on my first go around.   I was shooting Norma "Tactical" ammo for that I think.  Since then I use it to practice my service rifle shooting on the cheap.  I have never vised it down, but slung up a five shot group can be covered by a nickle at 25 meters, which is sufficient for an Appleseed shoot.

It's also the rifle I have been teaching the fundamentals of marksmanship to my boys with.  They got a lot from this rifle and the old 1940s M1 Garand US Army training video.

My 10/22 -

This is built on my first gun purchased when I turned 18.

Original receiver

Magpul Stock

18" Green Mountain Barrel

Kidd bolt

Original trigger reworked by Brimstone - best $38 spent IMO

LaRue Tactical Rail

Bushnell Ultra Legend 4.5x14 glass

Burris rings

It is a practice rifle as .22 LR is much cheaper than 6.5 CM. It will shoot 1 hole at 25 yards and 1/2 inch groups at 50 using cheap ammo.

 ETA - it is sitting on a Harris bypod using the LaRue mount that replaces the Harris mount portion of it. It moves around from rifle to rifle based on current use.

I post this not as a brag that I have one, but simply to express a dream.  A dream that could perhaps become a reality if someone happened to know where a stock could be found.

The picture is a Springfield M1922-M2, .22LR training rifle.  I got to shoot one when I was a kid and at the time, I found it very heavy, but on a rest, very accurate.  I would love to reproduce it on a Ruger 77/22 if I could find a wooden stock to match.  Is it as practical as a synthetic stock?  Absolutely not, but the nostalgia and soul healing magic of honest wood and steel makes it desirable.  So if anyone knows of an old time wooden stock for the Ruger, let me know.

If it's just the old school look and feel of wood and steel you are lookin for..there are plenty of older Remington, Winchester, Mossberg, etc .22's out there. Various conditions, and what not...but can shoot great. Look over a Rimfire central, they have specific forums for just about any old rimfire you come across. Bet it would be easier, simpler and cheaper then finding an old time style stock for a 77/22

There are some for sale on Gunbroker. It might be easier to buy one there.

If not, there is a guy on rimfirecentral.com that makes custom wood stocks. Maybe he could make a stock for you?
